I've been using this plugin for a bit over a year and so long as it's set up right it works perfectly. I get notifications on at least one lockout most months and if there's a recurring theme on IP addresses I add the range to the separate WP-Ban plugin to get rid of them permanently.
Been using this for quite some time and rely on it for ALL our websites.
Today, helped block attacker from Frankfurt cloud trying to hack our ecom system.
Simple. Effective. Brilliant.
If it breaks at some point (e.g., PHP7), or not updated, I'd pay somebody to upgrade it. Simply indispensable for us!
As 11+ year WP user, this is on my "must have" list for all WP sites. :-)
Seems that it works nice with WP 4.5.
Great plugin and it is still working on 4.4.2.
I've been using it for about 2 years & it works great. I wish there was an option to limit the number of lockouts allowed before an IP is completely blocked. I thought about finding a new plugin that has recent updates but it's still working.
I'm using it for years now and still working great on every sites I made ! Great work ! ;)
I have installed it at the backend and when I activated it for all sites I got the message:
Das Plugin hat keinen validen Header.
But all works fine ... therefore a five star.
Thanks for sharing your great work for free!
Works greats. Seeing all these hostile login attempts will scare the s@#$ out of you. But better be scared and do something about it than sorry later.
but Limit Login Attempts does the job best with minimal fuss and no little overhead. All plugins should be built so resliantly.
Does what it says, and works well. What more can I ask for? :)
